Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats
To Perform at UW-Eau Claire
MAILED: Sept. 30, 2002
EAU CLAIRE — The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats, an 18-member ensemble from the People’s Republic of China, will perform at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire on Monday, Oct. 14.
The Artists Series show will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Zorn Arena.
A sign reading “don’t try this at home” should be displayed at every performance by the Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats. Under the direction of acrobatic legend Ken Hai, the troupe flawlessly interprets an art form honed by years of training and discipline.
The show features acrobatic displays, feats of daring and balance, kung fu demonstrations and brilliant costumes. With a colorful style documented in a number of PBS specials, the company has received a Campus Entertainment Award from the National Association for Campus Activities.
Admission is $15 for the public; $13 for those 62 and older and UW System or Chippewa Valley Technical College faculty and staff; and $5 for those 17 and younger and UW System or CVTC students. Tickets are available at the University Service Center in Davies Center and will be sold at the door.
Patrons may also charge their tickets to MasterCard or Visa when they order by phone. Call (715) 836-3727 — or, outside the immediate Eau Claire area, call toll-free (800) 949-UWEC. A $3 handling fee will be added to all telephone charge orders.
Funded by the students of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, the Artists Series is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the state of Wisconsin. The program is administered by the Activities and Programs office.
